Billy Williams - Let's have a song upon the Phonograph (CDR4)

Billy Williams CD
Billy Williams (real name Richard Banks) knew how to advertise himself and as a publicity gimmick, travelled around London in an open car wearing a blue velvet suit. This was so associated with him that he became known as "The man in the Velvet Suit". His most famous song, When Father papered the Parlour, is still remembered today. He was a best seller with his discs, but also recorded on phonograph cylinders some of which feature on this CD. The CD contains 20 tracks, all transferred from original cylinders which were made between 1906 - 1913.
